Earl Dismuke is a Mississippi artist. He graduated in 2007 from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in sculpture. He works out of his studio located in Oxford, where he lives with his wife and four children. He is currently working on two bodies of work. One is primarily made of found objects and focuses on storytelling. The other is more formal, concentrating on form and negative space. These works are larger in scale and made of fabricated steel. Examples of his work have been included in several international and national exhibitions, including but not limited to, the Poydras Corridor Sculpture Exhibition, New Orleans, LA, The Walter Anderson Museum, Ocean Springs, MS, The Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, MS, Scope Basel in Basel, Switzerland, Lima, Peru, several gallery and museum shows, and private collections. Earl is a co-founder of the Yokna Sculpture Trail, a bi-annual rotating outdoor sculpture exhibition in Oxford, Mississippi. He is a recipient of the Mississippi Arts Commission 2019 Visual Arts Fellowship Grant, and a member of the International Sculpture Center.
